The Stone Coyotes


Little baby moving to the tick of the clock

Doctor on duty said, “He’s born to rock”

Got a guitar when he was just ten

Been hitting it hard ever since then


Oh no, he doesn’t want to be a star

Stayin’ in the background

Playin’ that rhythm guitar


Working in his room till he had the chords down

Started a band and word got around

In all these years and in all those shows

He never once struck a rock and roll pose


Standing at the side of the stage all night

Always in the shadow, out of the spotlight

Stoking the engine, feeding the flame

“Come hell or high water”, driving the train
